Ipsum Slim inzicht/ Ipsum Smart insight
|Beschrijving onderneming||IIpsum Energy is a 100% Dutch greentech company, founded by CEO Peter de Bie former director from Philips. Ipsum, which has close links with the University of Twente, makes it possible to give consumers insight into their energy consumption at a device level. Direct and continuous 24/7 feedback through the most used home device; the smartphone. |
Ipsum has 10 employees and is planning for market introduction in june 2018.
|Naam innovatie||Ipsum Slim inzicht/ Ipsum Smart insight|
|Beschrijving innovatie|| Ipsum, which has close links with the University of Twente, makes it possible to give consumers insight into their energy consumption at appliance level. Direct and continuous 24/7 feedback through the most used home device; the smartphone! |
Installation is plug and play onto the smart meter. Ipsum automatically detects & names the appliances. No action for the consumer needed, just plug in and see the results.
Insights are given back to the consumer via an interactive App that acts as the consumer's personal energy coach.
Benefits for the consumer:
Real time & personal insights on where and how to save most energy.
Personal advice on key actions to take and feedback on the progress.
Savings up to 20%, around 150 euro p/a
Ipsum’s Smart Insight is based on a unique algorithm developed through a research initiative at the University of Twente (UT). The research mission was to develop an algorithm that automatically identifies and name devices. Making things simple: Ipsum’s solution is simple to connect to the smart meter and avoids the need for plugs and expensive hardware. Ipsum mission is to provide insight for everyone, to create a real impact in meeting our climate objectives and supporting consumers to actively save energy.
|Noodzaak en belang van deze innovatie|| Consumers can save up to 20% on their energybill by using Ipsum smart insight. That is around 150 euro. Per year. |
The macro effect can be huge; if 10% of all households in the netherlands would apply Ipsum this would lead to a CO2 reduction of 10 billion ton CO2 & 100 mln euro on savings.
The key is that our disaggregation technique is very scalable and cheap making it almost for free for the enduser. In this way we can go for the 80% of the market instead of the 3% normal penetration with smart home innovations.
|Bijdrage aan een betere wereld|| See the earlier point on the impact on CO2 reduction and therefore on our climate. Furthermore by having a very cheap (and via our B2B2C approach where our partners pay for the subscription for the enduser making it free for the consumer) solution we can offer this especially to the households most in need for cost reductions. Energy poverty can be fougth back with Ipsum. |
Also good to mention that our technical solution can be applied worldwide on smart meter. 1 billion smart meters will be rolled out in the coming years.
|In welke mate is de innovatie nieuw en origineel|| Appliance insight is hardly existing and if existing it is done via expensive hardware to be installed with help of an installer. |
We are the only company who can do this based on only the smart meter data (10 sec data). This makes our algorithm technique unique in the world.
